The Early Bird: Top New singles 2-9-24 – 2-15-24 Reviewed

Floating On A Moment – Beth Gibbons – Gibbons is Portishead’s lead singer -the second best band to come out of Bristol- and after her gorgeous album with the Polish National Radio Symphony orchestra, one of the best of 2019, this is exactly what we hoped it was; acoustic and electronic and Beth’s near goth vocal a wonderful thing – A-

You Never Know – Iron & Wine – last year they did a live/OST album that was pretty good, but they are back with a lovely slice of easy going Americana – B+

ROCKSTAR – Hardy – he is waiting for that one song that blasts away and leads to immense fame and money, and gives Morgan Wallen a run for his top dog status. This isn’t it but it’s a real good, hard rockin’ anthem – A-

Talking / Once Again – Kanye West, North West,Ty Dolla $ign, ¥$ – sure, it’s nepotism but North certainly performs a credible rap and the James Blake sample is ace – B+

Soothe You – Tomás Doncker & The True Groove All-Stars – as analog asf, the perfect Valentine’s song off the upcoming Driving Through Limbo, Vol 2 reminds us that the guy gets sex as in equal parts tenderness and desire). Doncker is in the midst of a UK tour (he will also be doing a one off gig in New York this March) and it is a testament to mindless US that he isn’t doing the same tour across the states.
